Guacamole?

Peanut butter is made from peanuts, tomato paste is made from tomatoes, and guacamole is made from avocados, right?

Wrong. The guacamole sold by Kraft Foods Inc., one of the bestselling avocado dips in the nation, includes less than 2% avocado. The rest of the ingredients include water, partially hydrogenated coconut and soybean oil, corn syrup, whey protein concentrate, modified food starch, potato, and salt. Yum. Pass the chips.

But they're not the only ones. Other companies, like Herr’s is made of skim milk, corn oil, modified food starch, tomato paste, and salt. In fact, the label lists no avocado at all, only “avocado powder.” Mmmm. Sign me up for that.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but when I eat, I want there to be food in my food. Are you with me on that?

Fit's Tips: Read labels. Know what you're eating. Although it stinks that companies can put whatever junk they want in their products, it's up to the consumer to choose wisely.
